Director Randall Wallace's (Braveheart) revival of an old swashbuckling favorite goes for drama instead of comic action. Heartthrob Leonardo DiCaprio doubles as King Louis XIV of France and his less fortunate iron-masked twin. John Malkovich, Gérard Depardieu, and Jeremy Irons steal the show as The Three Musketeers.
